Carbon-Z Cub
AS3X
available BNFPNP

OVERVIEW

The full size Carbon Cub SS is a thoroughly modern, high performance aircraft that has taken the superior design of the Piper Super Cub and reinvented it using 21st Century materials such as carbon fibre along with computer-aided design technology and processes.

The Carbon-Z® Cub aircraft is the first to offer patented Carbon-Z strength and rigidity in a giant-scale package. Like the full-scale Cub Crafters carbon Cub SS aeroplane, this ultra-lightweight model by World Aerobatic Champion Quique Somenzini is astonishingly versatile whether the intention is to cruise gracefully or surprise scale onlookers with envelope busting aerobatics.

Helping with control is AS3X™ built into the included Spektrum™ AR635 receiver, allowing the pilot to experience agility far beyond the classic Cub form, while at the same time providing stability better than the original with control that’s always natural feeling, regardless of personal flying styles.

Easy to assemble the model features extensive pre-fabrication enabling it to be flight ready in a much shorter time than normal for a model of this size. The pre-painted parts assembly quickly and easily with all of the hard work done for you, whilst the scale blue and white colour scheme complements the overall look of the model.

At the heart of the Cub is a brushless power system that has been specially developed to offer incredible muscle for unbelievable STOL performance as well as the versatility to excel as a multi-purpose aircraft.

With a wingspan of 2150mm (84.6inch) the Carbon-Z Cub can easily span roles as an everyday flyer, sport aerobatic performer or as a glider tow plane. When fitted with the optional camera mount (EFL1045023) it can also competently assume the role of aerial photographer with AS3X aiding its ability to provide a stable platform.

When equipped with larger “Tundra” type tyres take off from quite rough surfaces that would otherwise keep them grounded is easily achievable, and if fitted with the optional floats pilots can enjoy flying taking off and landing back on water. All that’s needed to fly is in the box, just to bind to DSM2™DSMX® transmitter, and add a charged 3200 mAh 22.2V 30C LiPo flight batter battery. No building is required and the model can be assembled faster than the time it takes to charge the battery.

Q-Power System

The Carbon-Z Cub comes equipped with an E-flite Q-power system designed to give unbridled performance such as the ability the vertically climb out of a hover even when performing with the optional float set attached. Quique Somenzini gave special attention to the E-flite propeller ensuring it produces every ounce of thrust possible, delivering the kind of performance normally only enjoyed by 3D pilots. Its easy to access battery compartment can accept a wide range of configurations including two economical 3S LiPo packs connected in series.

Lighter than Wood

As the largest carbon-Z aircraft ever offered, lighter-than-wood technology enjoyed by park flyers can now be utilised as a durability and performance enhancing method of construction for fans of Giant Scale. So you get the benefits of CNC-mould technology with convenient big-plane features like plug-in wings and stabilizers, plus scale details such as wing struts and open frame elegance. Modern features like leading edge turbulators and operational flaps provide the extra control you need to fly at a wide range of speeds.

Optional Camera

Based on a platform known for its legendary versatility, the Carbon-Z Cub makes Giant Scale so simple – now even more pilots can go big. Its enormous Tundra wheels tackle just about any terrain chosen to romp from, or the Carbon-Z float set can be mounted to move on and off of water. A mechanism is included for towing sailplanes with wingspans as large as three metres, and there’s an optional camera mount so you can take one-of-a-kind images from a bird’s eye view.
